Acqui Rosé Brut
IT’S ROSÉ, IT’S BRUT, IT’S DOCG AND IT’S ACQUI!
The history and classicism of a great grapevine of our terroir turns to be dynamic and contemporary. From respect for tradition and innovation in the vineyard, an excellent rosé brut is born.
The minerality, the freshness and the slight aromaticity give character and identity to these young, fresh, gritty and inebriating bubbles.
